Ken Smith notes: The Miller family is in a rut. Mom decides to take the initiative and "work out a system for living together in harmony." From now on, the family will be managed "like a business," with weekly family council meetings where everyone's responsibilities will be clearly outlined. This approach strikes the other family members as a terrific idea ("Say, mom -- you're swell!") and everybody ends up happy. Classic mid-century thinking. Son "Harold" has the best lines.
